A deep serenity flows beneath the surface of this playfully modern home. Originally a 1950s vicarage, its religious calm has been transubstantiated into a pearl of a retreat, nestling in the midst of Brockwell Park. A wall of windows washes away the boundary between inside and out, so you’ll bathe in space. Bathing of a less existential nature is also easy, the sublime Brockwell Lido a mere front crawl away. Or you can splash out farther afield to the restaurants and cafés of Brixton: there will be plenty to keep your days full to the brim.
Ebb and flow
Your hosts are a young family who are rightfully awash with pride for their London home, having poured years of hard work into its renovation. They travel where the tide takes them: France is a favourite destination.
Light from the sweeping windows undulates through the vast open space that is the combined kitchen, dining and sitting rooms, changing gently with the clouds and the shifting sun throughout the day. Drift outside to take your lunch al fresco at the pub benches: on your return, your little guppies will take to the trampoline like fish to the sea.
Flowing upstairs, they can take their choice of the two single bedrooms, while you can sink into the master bedroom, complete with a skylight to illuminate this tranquil oasis.
Since the onefinestay photoshoot, both the second and third bedrooms have been redecorated.
The bed in the third bedroom is now a double bed.
The fireplace in this home is ornamental.
This is a well loved family home so does show some signs of wear and tear.
